Tinubu's victory: Atiku sends message to APC presidential candidate
One of those who hailed Tinubu on his landslide victory was Atiku.
In a tweet on Wednesday, June 8, Atiku noted that Tinubu's emergence despite the tough contest proves his tenacity. The former vice president wrote:
"Congratulations, @officialABAT, on your emergence as your party's presidential candidate. It has been a hard-fought contest, but that you prevailed confirms your tenacity."
2023 presidency: You are no match for Atiku, PDP mocks Tinubu hours after he won APC's presidential ticket
Recall that the PDP had thrown shades at Tinubu. The opposition party stated that Tinubu only succeeded in clinching the APC's number one ticket at "a very great price".
A statement signed by the national publicity secretary of the PDP, Debo Ologunagba described the ruling party's presidential ticket for the 2023 presidential election as the moribund, decrepit and crippled acquisition which has since served its purpose as a fraudulent contraption.
